Thrills for Indian travel reps

Seven luxury travel directors from India went jet-boating on the Dart River and skydiving in Queenstown last week.

Tourism New Zealand and Singapore Airlines were behind the visit by the group.

The visit to Queenstown was part of a familiarisation for selected directors selling high-end travel deals for free and independent travellers.

The trip was a self-drive experience and the directors visited luxury lodges in Dunedin, Queenstown, Fiordland, Wanaka, Franz Josef and Christchurch.
